Call for Abstracts: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 15, 2017
We are seeking new, innovative research and applied work from leaders in behavioral sciences as applied to the adoption of energy efficiency in energy production and use.


We invite 400-500-word abstracts for formal oral presentations, with or without accompanying full papers, as well as five-minute "lightning talks," panel discussions, and poster presentations. Abstracts may be submitted as part of a panel application (a group of presentations) or independently. Abstracts submitted as parts of panels will also be considered independently if the complete panels were not accepted.

New this year: In order to help moderators prepare their sessions, we will be requesting that presenters who will be delivering full-length or lightning talks also prepare a brief summary of their work (maximum of two pages) one month prior to the conference.

Special areas of interest in 2017 are:

  • Decision-making and behavioral economics
  • Jobs
  • Transportation
